The Las Vegas GP welcomes a “stellar” lineup: many celebrities have been spotted in the Formula 1 paddocks. The weekend in the Sin City is not just a sporting event but also a glamorous affair. A glimpse was already provided by the lavish opening ceremony.
After the array of artists who performed on the Wednesday preceding the race weekend, the Las Vegas GP is adorned with lights, trendy outfits, and many celebrities who seize the opportunity to be photographed.
Patrick Dempsey, who was already present on Saturday to hand over the tire to poleman Charles Leclerc, returned to watch the race from the Ferrari box. The Grey’s Anatomy actor, who will also appear in the Ferrari movie, is a racing enthusiast and even owns his own team.
The most “paparazzi-ed” was Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The former Milan footballer was hosted inside the Ferrari box, where he watched the race alongside pop star Rihanna. Ibra also had fun posing with “his mechanics” in red, posting a video next to the SF-23 at the Las Vegas Strip Circuit.

The Ferrari box was quite crowded: other athletes also wanted to follow the race from within. Among them was Formula 1 world champion Nigel Mansell and race car driver Emelia Hartford.
Brad Pitt was also there, strolling through the pit lane. The American star is shooting a film set in the world of Formula 1.
Many other celebrities first walked a kind of red carpet, then went to the paddocks. We mention Anthony Mackie (photographed at the Aston Martin box), Shaquille O’Neal (former basketball player now actor) posing with the Red Bull team before the race; the singer Rod Stewart, who is a well-known motorsports enthusiast; former sprinter Usain Bolt; DJ Steve Aoki.
And more: Gordon Ramsey, photographed while talking to Greg Maffei, CEO of Liberty Media; actresses Simone Ashley, Lupita Nyong’o, and Liza Koshy; surfer Kai Lenny and singer Kylie Minogue.
